Take A Bow Jimmy Briand

In the words of Andy Gray – “Tek a boo son, tek a boo”

I made the stupid mistake of eating my breaky while watching the weekend’s top goals in Europe. There was nothing special to report before I came across the Lyon vs Nancy match in France’s Ligue 1. Lyon were up 3-0 and were bobbing the ball around inside the Nancy half when Jimmy Briand scored. It wasn’t like any other goal though. It was a goal of sheer brilliance on the Frenchman’s behalf. The resulting goal saw me fumble my precious weetabix and I just stared at awe towards my computer screen.

Take a look for yourselves.

Rooney or Briand?


About Dylan O'Neill

Football mad Irish 20-year-old. Living in Dublin so I've had a keen interest in League of Ireland for the last 2-3 years and used to write about it on offtheupright.blogspot.com, focusing mainly on UCD's limited fortunes as well as the Irish national team. I started to merge this interest with gambling two years ago to moderate success so have continued to do so since! View all posts by Dylan O'Neill
